Beyonce

Cuts Kelly Out of the Picture

1/17/2014 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0117-beyonce-instagram-picBeyonce has cut Kelly Rowland out of her life -- and it was truly the unkindest cut of all.

Check out this photo (above) Beyonce posted on Instagram last night ... in honor of Aaliyah's 35th birthday.

0117-beyonce-kelly-instagram-picBut here's what you don't see ... Kelly Rowland ... who was in the pic when it was snapped in 2001 at the MTV Movie Awards, mere months before Aaliyah was killed in a plane crash.

Kelly posted the original photo on Instagram hours before Beyonce. Then Beyonce reposted it in black and white, completely cropping Kelly out of the pic ... and putting herself smack in the middle of the shot.

So we gotta ask ...

If I had I picture of me my friends and Aaliyah, Id crop it out. I mean it's MY page, not a shared one. People are only making this a big deal b/c they're both famous... Always making a mountain out of a mole hill..

It's not even about Kelly! It's about each girl's person relationship with A! Stop making this about drama.

Oh Pish posh. Find better stories. I'm sure Beyonce ran outta ****s to give. Kelly Rowland doesn't matter in this tribute. Same as Beyonce. It was about Aaliyah and Beyonce was just saying I've met her. Shut up bitches.
